aaron and su's wedding ceremony was beautiful and powerful. popson park was green and alive. the forecast was for light rain but leading up to the wedding it poured like a monsoon. like 4 o clock african rain. the crazy downpour made for beautiful pictures and a cozy vibe to the entire affair huddled under the picnic shelter around the fire fraser and kally made.
but i'm getting ahead of myself… first, i ran around town trying to find fruit trays. then i spilled the fruit trays.
the wedding photos were taken by aaron's talented friends the zhaos. every clearly well done picture in this post was shot by one of them. my dad captured a few nice moments, and all the centre framed cataloguing shots are mine.
after rallying at the lodge we sallied forth to pavan. witness aaron and neal opening the gates to marital bliss in their sunday best.
after some quick prep work and a raging monsoon, people began arriving for the wedding. food and drinks were out and the guests had some time to get to know one another under the picnic shelter. guests had come in from as far away as singapore, new york, montreal and coaldale.
suddenly and on aaron's command, the troops were mobilized and chairs put in place. people sat on chairs in the front, then picnic tables in the middle with standing room at the back.
fraser conducted a meaningful service and the couple said their vows through and to some tears.
aaron's nephew arlo brought up the rings. the couple was pronounced. people hugged.
little ty got to hang out with his namesake big ty for a while at the reception. it was fun to see them get reacquainted and good for us to get reacquainted as well.
